Mortgage Credit Score vs. Consumer Credit Score

Have you ever checked your credit score?

You may have received a credit score from one of these sources:

  1. Your credit card company.
  2. A free site, such as Credit Karma or Credit Sesame.
  3. One of the credit bureaus: Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion
  4. Your mortgage lender.

Don’t be surprised if the score you got from your mortgage lender was different from your score you obtained elsewhere. Why the difference? And, which score is correct and true?

To answer these questions, let’s look at some quick facts.
